Tucked between the cold Atlantic Ocean and the rocky slopes of a remote, arctic

low light.

The UK climbing scene is known for its strict traditional ethic, yielding super
sketchy, dangerous routes, and a competitive machismo. It’s the last place
you’d expect to find a nice little blond girl putting all the lads to shame, but
Hazel Findlay is doing just that. The first woman to climb the British grade of
E9, Hazel is a connoisseur of loose rock, dodgy gear, and big runouts.
